Lamar Jackson Being Given More Pre-Snap Responsibility

Thursday, June 13, 4:05 PM

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Todd Monken and quarterbacks coach Tee Martin have made it clear this offseason that they plan to give quarterback Lamar Jackson more responsibility in the team's pre-snap operation this year. During practice on Wednesday, Jackson was challenged by an aggressive defense to change routes, run schemes and protections at the line of scrimmage, and Martin liked what he saw as the offense had one of its sharper practices of the offseason. Last year's NFL MVP will be given more freedom before the snap in 2024 to get the offense into ideal looks. The 27-year-old also showed up this year a little bit lighter as he looks for an encore performance. As long as Jackson is able to stay healthy again, the dual-threat signal-caller should be a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Malik Willis Could See Playing Time Against Falcons

Tuesday, October 24, 2:22 PM

Tennessee Titans quarterback Malik Willis will see at least some playing time in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is unavailable. Tannehill suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and is not practicing to begin the week. Head coach Mike Vrabel said both Willis and rookie Will Levis will play on Sunday if Tannehill is ruled out. Obviously, neither signal-caller is on the fantasy radar given the circumstances, but both are worth picking up in deep superflex or two-QB leagues. Willis has completed just 35 of his 66 passing attempts for 350 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions over the last two seasons. Since Levis was selected in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, he is likely the favorite to take over the full-time job if Tannehill is out for a while or if the Titans decide to turn the offense over to a young signal-caller.
